You're right. Let's delete this thread and let's all look the other way and pretend it didn't/doesn't happen EVERY YEAR. That will surely change things for the better.
When some politician somewhere pushes for local ordinances to "close rivers" over certain flows (this was clear creek at 600 btw) or puts a permit system in place for your backyard run I don't want to hear any complaining. (they already do this for tubers and tried to do it during the flood 2 years ago).
There's also a big difference if you are 5'2" 300lb or 6'6" 300lb. Geez does that even need to be mentioned?
I like to "focus on" the facts and contributing factors:
Late 40's woman weighing 300lb
Unable to pull herself into the boat multiple times
inexperienced/shitty guide service
ill-fitting PFD, or not properly worn
class 3 boogey water at medium flow
Should have been completely preventable. If that's too harsh for you please call the PC police on me.
